Two innovative and state of the art data centers located in Changhua county Taiwan and Singapore has been started to boost its cloud computing and web based strength in the region. These data centers are very modern and unique in some features. The Singapore data center is guarded by a huge sculpture of robot made from the scrap metal while the Taiwan based data center uses the water as a cooling medium for its data center spaces and servers. This technology has never been employed anywhere else before this implementation.

Greatresponder.com – It was announced by the Google Corporation through its blog post this week that it has completed its two major data centers in Asia Pacific region. These two data centers located in Taiwan and Singapore were started about two years back and now are under operation. These data centers would expand the empire of the corporation in this region too. Both of these data centers are unique in technology and features as compared to other modern data centers of Google Corporation. The major feature of the Taiwan based data center is that it takes the cold water at night time and cools it further and stores as coolant in the day time.

The Taiwan based data center is spread over 15 hectares of the area located at about three hours drive from Taipei. It was completed at the cost of $600 million – while on the other hand, the Singapore based data center is located in a multistory building located in a residential locality with a public school on the one side and residential house on the other. This modern data center is guarded by a gigantic sculpture of robot made from the scrap metal at the main entrance – this is a very new and unique technique used in the data centers first time.

The company’s blog post further reads, “While we’ve been busy building, the growth in Asia’s Internet has been amazing – The number of Internet users in India doubled, from 100 million to 200 million. It took six years to achieve that milestone in the U.S. Between July and September of this year alone, more than 60 million people in Asia landed on the mobile Internet for the first time.” This clearly indicates that Google is very optimistic about the phenomenal progress in this region.
